WOODROW WILSON SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH — 1922

WILSON, (THOMAS) WOODROW.  (1856-1924).  Twenty-eighth President of the United States (1913-21).  A wonderful Photograph Boldly Signed, “Sincerely Yours, / Woodrow Wilson /1922”, on the lower photographer’s mount, under his image.  Wilson is depicted in a full-face bust pose facing slightly left.  Image is by Harris & Ewing, Washington, D.C. with their embossed imprint on the image, and also on the mount.  Over all size 7 1/2 x10 inches.  The silver toned photo, is tipped lightly to the mount.  What makes this photograph rather unique, and quite desirable is that it is dated in 1922, a full 2 years after Wilson suffered what was nearly at totally debilitating stroke while in the private residence bathroom in the White House.  [October 2, 1919].  For the next 16 months, the knowledge of Wilson’s condition was a closely guarded secret, with the public mostly unaware, and with his wife Edith, largely directing the policy and issues of the United States government for her husband, while also nursing her husband back to some semblance of health.  The size, and formation of the letters in Wilson’s signature clearly show the effects of his stroke.  A remarkable item documenting this event in Wilson’s life.
